‘Flash sale’ benefit for Family Centre
A special four-day sale is under way at Hilgroves on Reid Street, with part of the proceeds going in aid of Family Centre.
The auction and consignment gallery, at 73 Reid Street, launched the sale yesterday, and it will continue through Saturday, from 10am to 6pm.
A portion of the sales will be set aside to boost Family Centre's services for vulnerable children and families.
Raj Tolaram, the proprietor of Hilgroves, said he had selected the charity, adding: “Family Centre is a transformational charity that supports families and children.
“We strongly believe families are the most important pillars of our community and Hilgroves wants to assist families by supporting the work of Family Centre.
“Their programmes and services assist children and families to become healthier and reach for their dreams.”
The gallery will be selling estate wares and unique items, including works of cedar.
Martha Dismont, the executive director of Family Centre, said the charity was “deeply grateful to Raj, who understands our organisation's need for consistent, and significant, funding in order to do the work that is required to service over 250 families per year”.
She added: “Please know that when you make a purchase at the Flash Sale, you are purchasing an item that brings beauty and joy to you.
“However, your purchase does not stop there. You are also providing an opportunity for families and children to receive programmes and services that help to transform their lives.”
